By the time you are twenty-five, little lines and wrinkles begin to appear around your eyes. Sometimes they are caused by too much sun, sometimes by dryness.
The tissue around the eyes is different from the skin on the rest of your face; it is thinner and drier and therefore more prone to wrinkling and sagging, so an eye-care product has to be more emollient. The skin around the eyes also benefits from a high concentration of the soluble protein collagen. Read the rest of this entry »

Eyebrows probably give more character to a face than any other feature. By changing your brow shape you can give your face a totally new look.
Happily the natural thicker eyebrow is more acceptable today than the harsh plucked arch of recent years. Here are some makeup tips for beautiful eyebrows:
- Never try to completely reshape brows. Always follow their natural line, and pluck only if necessary to give a better shape.
- Pluck from underneath, but don’t be afraid occasionally to pluck a few strays from the top if they are growing wild.
- Always use a slant-edged eyebrow tweezers – it is easier to work with.
- If you pluck brows after a shower or bath you will find that it does not hurt so much and the hairs come out easily.
- If you draw blood, apply a tiny bit of antiseptic lotion with a cotton-wool bud.
- If your eyebrows have suffered from a surfeit of overzealous plucking and consequently won’t grow back, you can fill in tiny bald patches where necessary with delicate fine lines, drawn with a very sharp pencil.
- Don’t draw an eyebrow in one arched stroke. Use light, feathery strokes that look like hairs.
- If you have very full brows, brush a little Vaseline on them to keep them glossy.
- If brows are very heavy and black you may lighten them by bleaching. It is wise to have this done professionally unless you have a very steady hand.
- Never color brows more than two or three shades darker than your natural hair. This is particularly true for blonds who do not look good with heavy dark eyebrows.

- Don’t frown or squint or raise your eyebrows. Although wrinkles, like Christmas, will eventually arrive, you can prevent the ones on the forehead by frowning as little as possible. You can always see the difference on the foreheads of those who frown and those who don’t.
- Don’t stretch your face by pulling or tugging at it; leave it alone, except for skin care and make-up.
- Be particularly careful about applying make-up under the eyes, the most sensitive area. Dot your make-up on gently. Read the rest of this entry »

The best kind of shopping is the one you can do from the comfort of your home. We’re sharing our experience getting beauty fix from the hottest makeup and skincare webstore in town, Luxola.
Luxola was founded in 2011. After spending a few years working in Southeast Asia Alexis Horowitz-Burdick discovered a lack of reliable and efficient e-commerce platforms offering a vast range beauty products within the region, and decided to step up to the task. Achieving the overwhelming support of both consumers and investors, Luxola has very quickly grown into becoming the #1 destination for beauty in Southeast Asia, serving customers in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia, India, Philippines, Hong Kong, Brunei, and the United Arab Emirates.
The selection isn’t huge, but they have beauty brands from Europe and America that are virtually impossible to find in Australian beauty stores, including Sigma, Zoeva, Beauty Blender, Deborah Lippman, Tweezerman, Tangle Teaser, as well as some drugstore brands like Maybelline and L’Oreal. And another plus – all their products are 100% genuine, meaning no fakes will be coming your way!
To put it simply, their prices aren’t outrageous. You can shop on websites like Ebay and Amazon to get a better deal, but even then you can’t guarantee whether you are actually buying a genuine product. Aside from the perils of buying online, Luxola has pretty reasonably priced genuine beauty products, and they have sales ranging from 20-30% off, every single day! Plus, you get 20% off your first order just for signing up to their email service (which is basically just in place to tell you when sales are!) And plus, when I received my order, I found a $20 gift card in my package. Definitely a plus in my book!
Found a 30% discount code and literally shopped for an hour on Luxola! Love the brand selection, and the discount definitely made the prices very attractive.
Delivery guy also texted before reaching my place to check if someone was home. All around prompt and reliable service!
I ordered the Alima Pure bronzer in Trinidad – perfect shade and love the texture. The check-out process was simple and delivery was free. I love how you can choose your delivery time, and then they even send you a text when they’re on the way!
You also get to choose 2 sample items for free…who doesn’t love free samples?!
All around excellent shopping experience!
What I love about Luxola, is that it’s focused on bringing in brands you’ve never had access to in the region. You’re always in a mode of discovery, but at the same time, you can pick up old favorites alongside these new ones. I often replenish and pick up a couple of new things along the way.
My favorite thing too is how easy it is to communicate with your delivery driver. You never have issues since its’ so real time and personalized. I wasn’t home and he was very accomodating and dropped my package at the door.
In the end, there’s nothing stoping you now from getting beauty goodies from Luxola. It’s easy and safe. Most importantly, you deserve a few nice things to pamper yourself!

Step 1: Cleaning
Clean your face with make-up remover or lotion, massaging it on your skin for five minutes then removing it gently with cotton wool.
Step 2: Steam your face.
Take a pot of boiling water and place it on a hotplate on a low table. Sitting in front of the steaming pot, take a large towel and make a tent over your head. Holding the edge of the towel about six inches in front of your forehead, lean over the pot, but keep at least one foot away – if you get too close you can burn your skin or come out looking a bit lobsterish. After ten minutes pat your face dry.
Step 3: Apply a mask.
You can use either a proprietary brand or a natural home-made one. After ten minutes, remove the mask with damp cotton-wool balls. Try not to talk or move your face while the mask is on. Spray your face all over with a fine mist of Evian water or dab with damp cotton wool. Gently pat your skin dry.
Step 4: Apply moisturizer.
Lastly, apply a light moisturizer. If possible, do not apply make-up for several hours after your facial. Let your skin breathe.
Some tips for winter skin care
We often forget that cold weather can be just as harmful to the skin as the burning rays of the sun. Protect lips and under eyes with a chap stick and under-eye cream. The tissue around the eyes is extremely vulnerable, and usually the place where lines first appear. I have even seen ten year olds with lines under their eyes, and I’m sure it wasn’t from too much television.
Always protect against the drying effects of wind with a strong barrier cream or moisturizer, and apply these under make-up too. You should always wear sunglasses in very bright wintry sunlight and especially in snow. Squint lines occur just as much from the reflection of snow as they do from sand and water.

A major category of skin care cosmetics are moisturizers and nourishing preparations. There is a wide range of both products and of prices.
Moisturizers are valuable for all skin types. The keratinocytes of the epidermis have a high water content, but a modern environment in a centrally heated office or home means that moisture is continually being drawn out of the skin. If the keratinocytes lose some of their water content, small lines appear on the skin and it loses its youthful bloom. Most skins look better and feel more comfortable if a moisturizer is applied in the morning after washing the face. In some dry environments this may need to be re-applied at lunch time.

Below are important shampooing tips:
Before you shampoo, always comb your hair to separate snarls and tangles and to get rid of some of the dirt and hair spray. Never try to pull snarls with a brush or comb when the hair is wet, as this will cause breakage. Hair is slightly elastic and stretches when it is wet, so that when it dries it can snap like a twig.

Below are a few old recipes for hair treatments that you can do it all by yourself at home. Escape from the expensive hair treatment at saloon and also free yourself from the harmful chemicals in commercial hair treatment solutions.
For smoothing out frizzy hair
This is a very old recipe. It doesn’t straighten the hair, but it does smooth down the scales of the hair shaft, making the hair shinier and more manageable.
Make a thin paste (the consistency of cake batter) from a cup of flour and approximately two-thirds of a cup of cold water. Mix until all lumps have disappeared. Apply to dry, un-washed hair, smoothing the hair straight back. Leave for 20 minutes then rinse thoroughly. It will take about 5 minutes to rinse all the flour out. Now shampoo hair once with very mild shampoo.
A conditioner for very dry hair
Warm 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Massage thoroughly into the hair and scalp. Wrap a very hot damp towel around the head for 20 minutes, and then shampoo twice. This will give a shiny gloss to the hair.

Before you read further, you may want to check out on the morning and afternoon food for beautiful skin:
For dinner time, what is your favorite food? Are they healthy food for a healthy diet? Dinner is for most of us the big meal of the day, perhaps a family gathering or sometimes a social occasion. You may find it hard to deprive yourself while everyone else gets stuck into the chips, but if you start thinking of eating for energy, vitality and health rather than of dieting, and begin to see the results in your own body, you will soon be able to resist such temptations.
